Iron Mike Norton

The king of swamp stomp...

"Bluesy swamp stomp indeed; this muhfuh is the real deal." - Blurt Magazine

Slide guitarist, producer, and recording artist. Iron Mike Norton is described by peers and critics as one of the most innovative and creative artists in roots music.   Iron Mike combines elements of modern styles like hip hop, rock and techno with traditional hill country slide guitar and roots rock. The result is a sound truly unique to Iron Mike alone.

Based out of the swamps of Florida, Iron Mike signed his first record deal in 1995 as a country artist, not rock.  He was subsequently nominated for Best New Artist at the King Eagle Awards the following year in Nashville.  Since then, he has performed for audiences in both the USA and abroad. His ability to cross over into other formats has garnered him the opportunity to work with artists such as Willie Nelson, The Outlaws, songwriter Bill Dees (Oh, Pretty Woman), and his mentor, Sonny Landreth.

One thing I love about the Blues world is that it throws up styles and artists that bring a great deal of originality and thought to the listener, more so than any other genre. Iron Mike Norton is one of those.”
